Jamie Foxx was spotted covered in blue make up and decked out in a black hoodie and jeans as he arrived on the New York City set of The Amazing Spiderman 2 on Monday. Foxx is slated to play the film’s villain, Electro.
The 45-year-old actor has recently said that his costume won’t be green and yellow like in the comics. He told Blackfilm.com in December that the producers “want something for the future… They want to try new things, like a liquid rubber and things like that, and there are all these bolts and stuff in my arms where they are hanging me upside down and trying to figure out what [happens].”
Foxx looks ridiculously amazing in his Electro get-up. He is definitely well suited to play a villain. He has the maniacal and evil look down, and has proven in his past film projects (like Django Unchained) he has the potential to be a total badass. It’ll also be nice to see him on screen with Andrew Garfield, and see how they play off of one another.
It’s time to start getting excited about this movies release—even if it’s just in the shooting stages.
The film also stars Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, and Sally Field. It is set to open in 3D on May 2, 2014.
